Sustainable Wood for Cities: Pathways towards climate-smart wood procurement

28 June 2021, 14:00 - 15:30

Cities4Forests is hosting a participatory session for cities to explore the Sustainable Wood for Cities platform.

This online event will give an introduction to the platform for industry, city leaders and others on pathways that support their expertise. The core of the session will be an open discussion and Q&A with city representatives focused on exchanging knowledge on sustainable wood procurement for city staff and industry leaders. The goal is that all participants come away with further insights and a new capacity to engage in climate smart urbanization and forest conservation.

An expert panel will present eight unique pathways for sourcing sustainable wood followed by a roundtable conversation on the key challenges and questions surrounding city procurement.

June 28, 2021: 14:00-15:30 BST Register for the Zoom event here.

The event will take place during the London Climate Action Week (LCAW) which is an annual event that brings together the city’s world-leading array of climate professionals and communities, harnessing the power of London for global climate action.
